4-H Program

4-H isn't just about raising animals. 4-H youth develop skills they use throughout their lifetime in a positive youth leadership environment. Douglas County 4-H has 20 clubs with 428 members who bring their best to share during the County Fair. Come on out to the fair and see what wonderful things can happen when youth are provided positive outlets for their energy and potential!
